I'm enjoying this drama but Yamada-kun's mother is getting on my nerves. :cussing: I can't wait to see episode 4 when I get home. Yamada-kun father comes home. His dad is so handsome. :P

Well...i just picked up the series because of boredom...and I think I won't watch further than Ep4...seriously, this series could've been so much better without this "Tama no Blah"-Girl...she's annoying...well, she's cute in some way but in most of the scenes she just looks like an idiot...I'd continue with the series if they could make her...disappear...o_O
It's a good series but the main girl annoys me as hell...so I think I won't continue to watch this >.<

i really dont have a problem with her, shes part of what makes this drama what it is, her personality is an asset to the drama in my opinion I cant see why people are getting so pissed of by her

Hm...she just pissed me off at the end of Ep3...that's all there is to it...it's enough to dislike a character^^
And yeah, her personality may go well with the drama and add a bit of...oddness but I think she lacks something...she's like "He's rich, I 'love' him"

I hope they're not talking about Mimura and Takako. Seriously, if they ended up each other I might not be able to live longer.

But according to the manga, if Mimura ever engage anyone, it should be Yoshiko right? Yet there's no image of Yoshiko in the "preview of the next episode" part... How curious...

I'm so confused. Are these like filter episodes or something? I don't remember much of what happens in episode 5 and the next that were in the manga. Mizukawa Asami will guest star in episode 6, but who is she suppose to be?

Well at least, there's some progress with Keiichi. They are, in fact, going to drag Takako's character out. I feel bad for her unrequited love.

Episode 5 was good!! haha.... and Takako can still amused me!^^
FINALLY, the FIRST Mimura-Yoshiko scene we get in Ep5. Though NOTHING has going on yet. Its just a scene where Yoshiko is wearing the yukata, and Mimura praised her "Ooo...kawaiiii~". Then Yoshiko got embarrassed, and her siblings teases her^^

Yokattaaa... there was nothing between Mimura and Takako...pheww...^^ Mimura only took her on a ride with his car. Takako was so amazed with the car and jokingly asked, "Is there no possibility at all for me to get together with Mimura-kun??". Mimura clearly said, "Nai. (Nope.)". Haha, you go, boy!
Seem like, Mimura wanted to match-make Taro and Takako, make them get together. But Takako said, if its not 'tama no koshi'(married to money), she cant. Mimura asked, "are you sure? dont you have something more important??". Takako hesitated and was in deep thoughts... but then laughing, "Gomen! Don't think there's anything more important than money!". LOL! But towards the end, it was shown how Takako is actually still in love with Taro...but she tries to ward off those feelings.
Too bad, she already knows Taro's real situation huh? We cant get to see those wild imaginations anymore xD
Waa...Mizukawa Asami stars in next episode! Love her! Her character is Kotani, and she likes Taro. wachi, can you remind me from which volume this character in the manga? There were so many characters in the manga, I forgot this one xD

yeah, you're right, the drama gets more and more straaayed from the manga x)

Who is Kotani? :lol I wish I can tell you which volume, but I don't remember her. I'm not sure if she's even in the manga.. wait, I'm really bad with names. BBL with answer.. I'm pretty positive it might be her.

yanie: It could be volume 4&5. About their trip to Shanghai? Takako & her were the two competing for Taro's love or some sort. It could be her.

So we're already half way through the drama.. I'm not quite sure where they're going with this, but stay on the manga a little please.

Ah I really liked last nights episode too! This is still deffinatly one of my fav dramas this season!
But why didnt they show the theme song?? I was upset cause I love that song.
I loved Mimura in this episode, well I love him in every episode and last nights was no exception.
I think its pretty funny that hes trying to set up Takako and Taro!
And he was so mega cool at the end when he won the watermelon for taros family.

Yokatta...
I'm so relieved that there's NO POSSIBILITY of Mimura and Takako XDDDD I even read the manga a few days ago just to make sure that there's no possibility of them getting together in the mange XD I'm a big fan of Sho-kun, and I think I can't manage to sub if they get together

@salz Nurse? I dont think he has played a nurse. Do you mean when he is a preschool teacher? If that is the one then its called Yoiko no Mikata and Stormy team is subbing it also. Check out Aibakaland forum.

So can anyone share spoilers about the new gal who will show up in episode 6?

Although it may seem she's interested in Taro, will there be a developing relationship between her and Mimura.
:scratch:

Sorry about my lousy questions, I'm just really curious.

Episode 6: AWESOME!!! Loved it alot!!^0^ The first half, stick to the manga very well !!!^^ And even if the last half was not...I still love the plot deviation! THIS IS how the Hana Yori Dango team suppose to be, even with plot deviation can still produce a GOOD production^^
Apparently, the plot of Ep6 based on manga vol. 6 chapter 20, it was about Yamada Taro being casted as the main role for an independent movie^^ Mizukawa Asami's role is Kotani, the director. And NO WORRIES, she was not romantically involved AT ALL with Taro nor Mimura. She was simply just A DIRECTOR^^
Yamada Taro accepted the role offer coz, Kotani promised him this New Kotani pancake (her father's company product) that Taro's siblings had always wanted to eat.

The deviated part, Ikegami Takako is also casted as the heroine of the movie. It's a love story between a poor boy and a rich girl^^ Hmm, somehow I come to like Taro and Takako as a couple. Its irony, but I think they're cute together^^ Esp. where Taro visit Takako's house and Takako visit Taro's house too. And in this episode, Takako starts to learn how money is not everything... she might change from now on, and be honest with her own feelings on Taro.

Oh, after she got casted as the heroine. She started imagining herself and Taro on MAGAZINE COVERS!!! LOL! One of them with both holding a lemon fruit!! LOL! LOL! HIllarious! Loved that imagination! I wonder if one of them is a REAL SHOT of Ninomiya and Tabe Mikako on TV Guide or TV Pia?? haha!!

Next episode looks good!! They all go together on a vacation! In the manga, they all go to Shanghai. But in the drama, I think its just out of town, still inside Japan^^ Seem like, more development on Taro-Takako!^^ I wonder if Taro will ever have feelings for her in the drama? Since up to Ep6, seem like Taro cares about nothing else than his family and foods^^

However, Mimura keeps interfering in Taro's matters, I feel like "how about focusing on Mimura's matters once in awhile??!"... arrggh... when will that Mimura-Yoshiko plot comes?? There are only 4 eps more.... since next ep's won't be about that either... only 3 eps left =(

i agree last nights episode was great!!!
Im glad Takako is finally realising money isn't everything but I think it's hilarious that mean while Taro has not idea of her feeling and doesn't really pay any kind of "special" attention to her as a girl.
One of the funniest part was where Takako lost to a hamburger!!!
Taro was having difficulty getting enough conviction into a line (i think it was something along the lines of "I can't live without you") so Mimura gives him some advice and then he could do it perfectly. Taro later tells Takako that Mimura told him to things of food so he was actually thinking about how he couldn't live without a hamburger! Classic comedy! great stuff!

I watched 5 episodes so far and I'm soooo disappointed with this drama.
I'm a great fan of the manga. I began to read it near 10 years ago and it's definitly one of my fav. So I had great expectations with this adaptation.
But absolutely nothing is respected.
Maybe if you haven't read the manga, you can like it but to me, the actors are totally out of character.
To explain in a simple way, Yamada Taro has basically two expressions : happy or sad. In the drama, even when he's smiling, his eyes are sad... Not at all my vision of Taro.
And what are they doing with Kazuo and Ayako? Absolutly no emotion!
And where is the Sugiura plot (the funniest of the manga)?
Why is Takako everywhere? She's not that important in the manga.
And so on...

Maybe it's my fault. I was expecting too much... Maybe this manga has too many parts (Maria's story, 15 years old father, yaoi plot...) that can't be shown on TV. So what's left are only cliches, already seen in lots of drama (reminds me a lot of Hana Yori Dango). To my opinion, Yamada Taro Monogatari deserved better than this adaptation. I can't find the original spirit :cry:

The thing with manga j-drama adaptions is they tend to go off the plot of the original manga quite a lot. It makes the drama unpredictable and original. I can understand why your angry as I had the same feelings about Hanazakari no Kimitachi e to begin with but ive gotten past that stage and am enjoying the drama as an original now and i guess thats what needs to be done with this drama too.
I havent read this manga so luckily i dont have that issue here as well ^_^

but sadly, the ratings for the drama dropped to 11.1%. a huge drop, ne? i wonder why.

Another great episode tonight!!! I LOVED IT!!! The whole plot was not in the comic, except the fact Taro leave the family for a vacation.
Awww~~ seem like Taro start to feel something for Takako too!! Yay! Haha, although his expression was only shown for 1 SECOND, but its enough to show he feel something for her too^^ heehee... But I have a feeling they won't be together until the end of the drama^^

OMG!!! I soooo love Mimura here!!! When he sit facing the sun!! Cho kakkoooii!! When he laughs so naturally, when he make that funny face!! Ahhhh, love him!!!

Next episode, Taro's father is back!! Seem like Taro's parents' love plot and chemistry will emerge, yay!! And the Yamada family is moving to a BIG HOUSE!!!! Haha~

And... that is the 8th episode.... I give up the hope of having Mimura-Yoshiko plot in this dorama. Seem like its not coming....hiks.... too bad.... :-(

One of the things I really really love about Mimura's many faces. He is a character that just cracks me up cause hes a serious guy but at the same time hes really friendly and loves playing around with Taro.
Saw lots of these faces in the last episode. Loved it!!!!!

I started watching the drama today, and it's really good. Just one character I really really really don't like. Ikegami girl her character is horrible. I can't like her at all. Understandable that she wants to find a wealthy guy, but she I'm watching ep 4 and she falls for another guy so easily who she thinks is rich. It makes her so money hungry. I just hate watching her parts in the show.
Other than that the other characters (excluding Aaron, right now he's acting so much like a spoiled brat he is) are fine and makes the show enjoyable to watch.

It appears most people felt this at first but are slowly growing to like her better as the series goes on and her character changes and grows

I THANK GOD for this drama because I found Mitsuru Matsuoka(his dad) and fell madly in love. He's simply brilliant and my god is he beautiful. And you are right, he looks like a fairy tale character, reminds me of a fox too! <33333 *swoon*

I'll be watching ep. 6 when ever it's done downloading, i hope my opinion on the girl changes too, cause i'm really starting to despise her. Grr.... Im so glad SHo told her there was no chance of them hooking up! I love Sho! hehehehe....

SO exited for the ep based on his parents! More Misturu for me to drool over... <3333 XD

Haha! Yokatta ne! And you changed opinion pretty fast too :P

Love_Child, you better watch Hito ni Yasashiku (Be Nice To People) then, Matsuoka Mitsuru stars that drama, and it was an EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT dorama... and SUPER-HILLARIOUS. It will make you laughing like crazy in the beginning, and cries buckets in the end. As much as I love Yamada Taro Monogatari, I have to say "Hito ni Yasashiku" is 10 times better than Yamada Taro :P

Yanie: Did it already! Hehehe. Trust me, as soon as I saw Matsuoka in Yamada Taro I searched him down like crazy, turns out his band has become pretty much my FAVORITE JROCK group - ever... And also, HnY is so amazing, i've cried every episode and also laughed SO hard... I'm almost through with it and I am pretty sure that it will become my FAVORITE dorama in the end. Thank you for telling me though hehe, cause if I hadn't found it already then you would have been a savior! XD XD XD

Good eye! Yes it is!

Hmm... Just looking on the official site, I'm surprised that they were allowed to use Nino and Sakurai's image there, even though it is a drawn version. Usually you have to put something that doesn't look like a person. This means that they might be allowed to post Johnny photos on wikipedia if you just run it thru a photoshop filter?

I was surprised with that too at first. I think they did that for Matsumoto Jun's dramas but took it off the site after sometime. The jimusho haven't allowed any of the photos before (like what they did to Toma in Hanakimi). I guess TBS have a "special" relationship with Johnnys/Arashi.

WOW ~ This week's episode was so funny ~
The guy who likes Taro ~ Finds out that Taro is poor and tries to tell his class ~ But no one beleives him and eventually he decides (well the whole class) follows Taro home ~ But Taro ends up in front of this HUGE house and everyone's like OMG ~ He is RICH ~ But in truth, it was Taro's dad's friends. And they are just living at her house ~

Mimura looks sad that Taro had moved out of the small house ~

Next week's look so good ~ I can't wait

Does anyone know if Yamada Tarou is coming on later tonight or if it has been completely removed from the schedule? There's some race or something on instead. *flips b/w it and Death Note*

Boo, boo. I'll be upset if it's not on at all!!

Haha! Yokatta ne! And you changed opinion pretty fast too :P

Love_Child, you better watch Hito ni Yasashiku (Be Nice To People) then, Matsuoka Mitsuru stars that drama, and it was an EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT dorama... and SUPER-HILLARIOUS. It will make you laughing like crazy in the beginning, and cries buckets in the end. As much as I love Yamada Taro Monogatari, I have to say "Hito ni Yasashiku" is 10 times better than Yamada Taro :P
It's also interesting to note that Matsuoka Mitsuru's character in Hito ni Yasashiku is named Yamada Tarou. Coincidental?... Maybe. :wink:

Its confirmed that a member of Arashi will be guest starring in YTM but the identity is still not revealed yet..
I'm betting on Ohno Satoshi. From the buzz, its him. Some girls with connection been hinting its him. I'm hoping its HIM!

Some questions for the manga readers, what character would suit Ohno the most? Or what characters do you wish to be included in YTM?
